Resort
“Worth the 25 minute drive. Fun spot to enjoy views is the ocean and relax with a beverage. A must!”
  • 34 locals recommend
Lighthouse
“An active coast guard area, you can't usually tour the lighthouse but you can get rather close to see the building and the great overlook onto the beach and water below. They have some cool displays about different coast guard rescues and the trip the pilgrims took (before they landed in plymouth). This spot is great for sun rises if you get up early or even great colors at sunset (as the sun sets behind you).”

Indie Movie Theatre

Grocery or Supermarket
“Vey close by. We have never prepared a meal for a large gathering that did not require a last minute trip to Chatham Market. Chatham Market is a modern, clean, well stocked small grocery market. It is not a farm stand/novelty market. It's a bit pricier than the local Super Stop and Shop but when the meal is on the stove, being two minutes away instead of twelve makes all the difference. We are thankful to have Chatham Market so close by.”
